    It's morality values/aspect, improve the law systems, improve human rights.

    1)In order to be a nation, the country need to improve it's morality values/aspect, improve the law systems, improve human rights, improve transparency, reduce corruptions and exercised freedom of speech.

    2) Everybody is judging him from moral and ethical aspects.

    Re: It's morality values/aspect, improve the law systems, improve human rights.

    In order to be a nation, the country need to improve
    it's morality values/aspect, improve the law systems, improve human rights, improve transparency, reduce corruptions and exercised freedom of speech.


    I don't think any of those are necessary to be a "nation."

    The country needs to improve its [note, no apostrophe] values, iits law systems [or, "the rule of law"], its respect for human rights and transparency. It also needs to reduce its corruption [note, not plural] and support free speech for its citizens.

    Hello,

    1. First, good luck on your group discussion.

    2. I think that I understand the meaning of that sentence.

    a. I think that your meaning is something like:

    Everybody / Many people / The public is judging him.
    They are applying moral and ethical standards to their judgment of him.

    Am I right? (By the way, I think that I may know who "he" is, but -- of course -- I shan't name "him.")

    3. If my reading is correct, then maybe you could consider something like this for your discussion:

    The public [which actually means "most" of the public] is applying moral and ethical standards in their judgment of him.


    He is being judged by the public in accordance with moral and ethical standards.

    Thanks SoothingDave for replying to my post. I really appreciate it. My group discussion went really well. I have learned a new way of saying freedom of speech from you, which is free speech. :)

    Thanks for replying TheParser. My group discussion went really well :). Yes, you have understood my sentence correctly. That is what I wanted to express but I don't seem to be able to figure out how to express it like the way you did. Thanks for teaching me how to say it in the proper way.
